Architecture Assistant Teaching Professor exhibits at ACCelerate

LiDAR generated image of a ship docked in the arcticAssistant Teaching Professor Daniele Profeta of Syracuse University’s School of Architecture exhibited at ACCelerate: The ACC Smithsonian Creativity and Innovation Festival, which was held April 5-7 at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.

Profeta’s interactive exhibit on ARCTIC LiDAR was an immersive 360° Video Installation exploring the quickly expanding logistic landscape of the Arctic coast.  Using 3d LiDAR scanning, this 360° video captured the primary nodes of this far reaching infrastructure, ranging from Dry Ports to Ice Breakers and Rail Terminals, and re-assembled them in a composite, speculative landscape.   Continue Reading
